I have spent all weekend modeling the Enola Gay for a history video assignment. So far I have a close to accurate frame made, or about as much as I need for what I am trying to do. My next step (I believe) is to texture the body and touch up a few things. I am trying to go for photo realism here, but I am limited to my ability, and a reasonable render time (it will be animated). I have never perfected texturing and I am having a hard time with it. Pictures of the Enola gay have very distinct aluminum pannels and detailed cockpit glass. The airframe textures and glass are the only things that are really very important; they are the only reason I started the plane to begin with.
If anyone would like to play around with the file, I have it posted:
I would appreciate any feedback or modifications!
